City Transformation: Fruitfulness of our Volunteering and Giving
- Pray for transformation in the lives of the church goers in our city. May the service and donations given by church volunteers enable people to know God and to live out his will and his ways.
Colorado Springs ranks 12th out of 366 U.S. cities for volunteerism and charitable giving (NerdWallet). (Boulder was 5th and Fort Collins was 7th.) The ranking was based on the culture of volunteerism, volunteers’ commitment, and monetary donations. According to NerdWallet’s calculations, 32.6% of Colorado Springs residents volunteer–averaging 50.2 hours of donated time a year–and people give 5% of their income to charitable groups.
This week we continue to pray for transformation in the lives of those who are recipients of our volunteer service and monetary giving.
